Episode 34 - Leonard, Lightfoot & Other Legends

I was lucky enough to attend the Leonard Cohen show this past week in Saskatoon, so I thought I’d solidify the fact that I, indeed, do not hate Mr. Cohen by starting the show off with an all-Leonard set. I continued the episode with a selection of other legends of Canadian music.

Here’s the playlist:

1. First We Take Manhattan - Leonard Cohen
2. So Long, Marian - Leonard Cohen
3. Who by Fire - Leonard Cohen
4. When I was a Cowboy - Ian & Sylvia
5. Tribute to Wilf Carter - Stompin’ Tom Connors
6. All Nite Cafe - Hank Snow
7. Canadian Railroad Trilogy - Gordon Lightfoot
8. Get Up Jake - The Band
9. Who do you Love? - Ronnie Hawkins & the Hawks
10. Shakin’ All Over - Chad Allan & the Expressions (the Guess Who)
11. Like a Hurricane (Live) - Neil Young & Crazy Horse

Episode 35 - Heavy as a Fairly Heavy Thing

With the release of a documentary on Canadian metal monsters Anvil and the reissue of classic canuck album "Keep the Dogs Away" by Thor, I decided to play some bangin' heavy Canadian music this week. Though it might not have been as heavy as the show that follows mine (Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing) on CFCR, it was pretty meaty, if I do say so myself.

Here's the playlist:

1. Rock & Roll - Cripple Creek Fairies
2. Turn you out - Bionic
3. Lay Down - Priestess
4. Psychotic Retraction - C’mon
5. White Witch Woman Blues - Pride Tiger
6. Wucan - Black Mountain
7. The Switch - The New Jacobin Club*
8. Big Sleep - Golden Smoke*
9. I don’t need it - The Warbrides*
10. Bison Eyes - Quest for Fire
11. School Love - Anvil
12. Keep the Dogs Away - Thor
